|Olle Svensk - Pitroghucy - Olle Svensk|
As we step in to the music of Pitroghucy, we also step in to empty factories, deserted warehouses and isolated buildings. Inspired by these abandoned places Olle Svensk has created a piece off work that brings the listener on an urban exploration in sound. What may we find in the dark? Which creatures dwell amongst the debris? Who might we meet deep in these tunnels? Might it be ourselves? Is it our own subconsiousness, spawning from deep inside our minds? "Early in the mornings when I'm walking...

|DEAD #339 - DEAD EP - DEAD #339|
DEAD #339 is industrial machine sounds, horror movie samples, screeches, and gloomy irritating noises composing harmony. From a bleak and disheartening repetitive waltz to a hard-hitting, maddening, momentum track, the music is an emotional outlet. Each track is dismal, downward, and harsh that escorts the listener down a path from which none can truly revisit. The background is cluttered with horror and slowly a new eerie sample is added until the chaos controls all...

|Monopole - complex industrialism militarily - Monopole|
Music is in many ways a time experience. In many cases also a time indication. One use to say listening to a song takes you back in time, or in some cases, to the future. And then of course a musician is also in a creative process. Some prefer to improvise or work impulsive, others make slow decisions and let the music evolve in a mature manner. With Monopole's long, thirty three minutes track: complex industrialism militarily, you may wonder if it's an album, an ep or a mini album? Does it matt...
